Opposition leader criticises low attendance of lawmakers
Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Khursheed Shah lashed out at the low presence of lawmakers in the lower house of Parliament on Tuesday.
Shah, a member of the Pakistan Peoples Party, said he is ashamed to see such a low level of attendance in the assembly today, when the lawmakers were expected to discuss the Electoral Reforms Bill 2017.
He said when the prime minister comes to attend the assembly session, others follow suit.
Speaker directed, on advice of Shah, PML-N chief whip Sheikh Aftab Ahmed to bring the backbenchers to the front.
In response, Ahmed, the parliamentary affairs minister, said he agrees with Shah’s arguments. “I request Shah to get used to this,” quipped Ahmed.
Speaker Ayaz Sadiq directed Ahmed to ensure the presence of lawmakers and ministers of the ruling party.
